Still making things...how about a shabby chic "quilt of valour"?

But first, I did finish the corduroy dresses and leggings for the twins and got them in the mail.


I played in my SMASH book.....ever the teenager! LOL!


Knitted a lot on the remake of the sweater which I raveled last week.....using larger needles, it is softer. Adding the NORO silk garden yarns in the yoke makes it scrappy, colorful and fun!


And, speaking of scrappy and colorful , today I am working on a patriotic quilt which features "Faded Splendor" floral flag print fabric by Robyn Randolph.

So pretty and romantic! but overall, the fat quarter group was too dull and soft for my taste! I tend to like light bright pastels! So I collected and added a great mishmash of more color and more Stars and Stripes!
Using the pattern for a lattice quilt in Missouri Star Quilts, "BLOCK" magazine, I am making a very romantic quilt! Even my lattice is a pale blue floral! Here, above the first (center) row is done....a few rows later, below...

This would be a beautiful label for the quilt....if I could print it in fabric!


I have to stop sewing and get some cooking done. Making several meat loves this afternoon, one for tonight and others for the freezer!
***************************************
One last quilt top today....I used another pattern from the same magazine...winter, volume 1 issue1....



To make a Christmas lap quilt top....again, I had to add to the little charm pack with fun Christmas fabrics of my own choosing.....found several relating to the manger scene which was implied by the Bethlehem pieces in the original charm pack!


These need to be machine quilted.....here is my friend Paula doing just that! At a quilt retreat! fun!


That's all now.....time to peel potatoes and make those meat loaves!

I love the little tops. Are there any little boy versions to show?

I made flannel pj pants and bath robes for the boys....they were in an earlier post.
There really is so much more you can make for girls!
Pillowcases are great for either, easy too!
